"It was absolutely great. They are very caring and wonderful people. Everyone was very helpful while I was there." – Michael M.
"Dr. Ramsey performed a total knee replacement on me. My knee is now feeling better than it was before the surgery and I still have a few months to go to see just how much better it will get. I am pleased with him and what he did for me." – Yvonne C.

"I was referred to Coastal Orthopedics by a fellow doctor and could not be more happy with my decision. I was involved in an ATV accident and was transported to Grand Strand as a trauma patient. I suffered a concussion, a fractured rib, and a fractured scapula. Two weeks after my discharge from Grand Strand I was still in a great amount of pain, and that is when I decided to have a second opinion. My initial appointment was with Tasha Lee who did a phenomenal job, not only with her assessment, but took the time to understand my frustration and pain. After her assessment, she decided to order additional X-rays. It was those additional X-rays that Dr. Tupis  became involved and explained to me that I had a fractured rib & scapula, an important piece of information that Grand Strand MISSED. My follow-up appointment was with Dr. Tupis who again took the time and effort to evaluate and explain my X-rays, course of action, and follow-up care. Honestly, I usually do not care much for doctor visits, but my experience with Coastal Orthopedics has been phenomenal–not only Dr. Tupis and Tasha, but the X-ray techs, nurses, and other staff have been great." – Nichole S.
"I would be crippled for life without you guys." – Christopher J.
"Dr. Watson is absolutely one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure of seeing!! She is very good at what she does and is very personable, listens to you as a patient, and works with you to figure out what is the best plan of action to take. The nurse and the rest of the staff at Coastal Orthopedics are awesome and do everything to help you through your medical problems!!!" – Warren M.

"I went to Dr. Mills for a second opinion after being in pain for months. After reviewing the initial MRI, he immediately sent me for a new one to reevaluate my condition after six months since the first MRI. After finding my condition had worsened he informed me that he would be able to perform a surgery that would improve my way of life. The surgery he was referring to was an ALIF surgery to correct my condition of three herniated disc and lack of Cartlidge between my vertebrae's which had become bone on bone.The surgery was performed with an incredible team of doctors and I am well on my way to a remarkable and speedy recovery. Within a week of your surgery I was able to walk 2 miles and have High hope's for reestablishing my active way of life. . ." – Bryan M. 
"After 10 plus years dealing with neck/shoulder pain...I just had Cervical fusion C6/C7 surgery with Dr. Mills and his team. I am happy to write this review 2 weeks later...I am feeling great! Dr. Mills and his staff are the BEST. Expect a no-nonsense straight to the point discussion, and quick easy process if you follow his program. While still a little stiff after 2 weeks, it's crazy how sometimes I forget that I just had a major surgery because I feel so good. Don't put off this surgery...it's not a big deal. You'll wonder why you didn't get it done sooner. I'm glad I did." – Rainier 
"I saw Dr. Mills for my back pain. He ordered an MRI and we went over it and he scheduled me with what I needed to do and what to take. He is very professional. He is knowledgeable and very sincere. I would highly recommend him." – Debbie L.  
"I have had to have 2 back surgeries and so far they have both been a success. Dr. Mills has an AWESOME group working with him.  Without them, I don't know where I would be now. They are always there to guide and he help you in any way, I  will always go back to Dr. Mills should I ever have to have any back issues come up." – Helen S.
"Dr. Todd M. Tupis and his assistants are a very good people they know what they're doing. They take their time and show me the X-ray pictures and explained it to me that's what matters to me." – Darryl H.
